Today, the school still serves Non-English Proficient immigrant students. Our students come from both urban and rural areas of China, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia and other Chinese speaking countires. Many live in Chinatown, North Beach, the Tenderloin and Visitavion Valley areas. Increasingly, more are coming from other parts of the city. Our students are highly motivatedand eager to learn. Cultural and family values foster positive attitudes toward education, teachers and school.
All the students are screened by the SFUSD Education Placement Center for assignment to our school. The students receive and English Plus Program which includes English acquisition, content instruction in primary language, primary language support and community orientation. They stay for one academic year and are then transferred to a dual language enrichment program in other schools within the district.
